XanEdu Tablet App Video produced for XanEdu Publishing, Inc.
Our client, XanEdu, a digital text-book publisher based in Ann Arbor, MI came to us to make a web-ready video that explained and promoted their award-winning iPad app. We were able to show how the app transforms how students engage with content and collaborate with their peers as they interacted with XanEdu custom course materials.
We orchestrated the concept, illustrations, animation, video, music composition and professional voice over for a final product that epitomized the client’s desires.
